What is Casein Protein Made Of ?I've always wondered the follow, What Is Casein Protein Made of? and How is Casein Protein different than Whey Protein. So, In this Episode, we will discuss this topic! Casein protein is a derivative of milk. When you take milk and curdle it you get a variety of different substances two of which are whey protein and casein The way that casein gets made essentially is that you remove the fats the carbs and whey and you get casein.So, what are the benefits of taking Casein protein? Casin is a slow absorbing or slow digesting protein. The reason why it's slow digesting is that when casein comes in a contact with water where your stomach acid it coagulates and becomes very thick. In fact, a lot of people take the casein and make it into something called casein pudding which is actually really tasty if you like supplements lol:) Now, because the casein coagulates it takes longer for your body to process it. So, casein takes longer for your body to digest. It's simply stays in your body for a long longer than whey protein. We're talking like up to six or seven hours sometimes. How is this beneficial? Most bodybuilders like to take casein An hour to half an hour before they go to bed. The thinking here is pretty simple. And it makes a lot of sense when you think about what happens when you go to sleep. When you go to sleep your body starts the process of breaking muscle tissue down. This is called becoming catabolic. If you're looking to put on muscle you want to feed your body so that you can grow muscles more effectively. One good way to do this is to feed yourself while you're sleeping. And you obviously can't exactly get up multiple times throughout the night to eat. So, when you take casein what happens is The casein continues to get processed by your stomach while you sleep so it's as if you're feeding it while you're also recovering at night. This will help your body go anabolic which means that your body will be building muscle rather than breaking it down. So, the best time to take casein is at night. No, I just want to mention that you don't absolutely have to take any kinds of supplements. You don't need casein and you certainly don't need whey or any other kinds of supplements unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Nelson's mentioned that you should never take a supplement when you're diet isn't right. Meaning, if you're eating pizza and cookies for all of your meals and you're not really eating correctly for the body that you want or for the kind of fitness that you're trying to improve it then it doesn't really make a difference if you take that protein shake or not. It's kind of like you're putting the cart before the horse. First, get your diet dialed in and second make sure that you've got a solid workout plan that's working for you. Then and only then should you even begin to consider taking a supplement. And even when the truth is that you don't absolutely need it. Supplements can be really expensive and You can always just eat some good quality protein. Your body doesn't exactly process it the same way but it works just fine. Heck, people have been eating protein not from a protein bin for centuries eons really I'm sure we'll be fine without it. But if you are looking to spend a little extra money and you like the convenience factor of eating for taking protein supplements then I would recommend going with ascent protein. Their Products are clean and they are third-party tested. meaning you're going to get exactly what you pay for with those products. There's no hidden ingredients or BS that you have to worry about when you're going with ascent protein. Ascent Protein Support this podcast:
What is Whey Protein ? What Is Whey Protein Concentrate Made Of?Let's begin. So whey protein specifically is considered a fast absorbing or fast suggesting protein. And so the benefit of having something that's fast adjusting. Right. Like Whey protein is that when you workout during the process of working out your body starts to break down muscle tissue and then it's going to repair and rebuild. And what we want to do is make sure that the repair process goes more smoothly and that our body builds more than it breaks down. And in that, it repairs and builds muscle effectively. the best way to do that is by feeding your body as soon as possible after a workout or some people even suggest during your workouts with protein. Now the easiest and best source of protein to take in when you're working out or after your workout is a whey protein concentrate or Whey Protein Isolate. Now. here's the distinct difference between whey protein concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate first whey protein concentrate is the basic form of whey protein.  So it's the most simple form that's taken from the derivative milk. It's got lactose some carbs and some fat and lots of protein that is very easily digestible. When we get into Protein Isolate what we do is we're actually deriving the whey protein concentrate. We're taking out from the whey protein concentrate most of the fats and the carbs and we're sure as heck taking out the lactose. So the benefit what people will debate is which one is better. Now in my book and most people will tell you that it doesn't really make that big of difference. The only people who really worry about this are people who are really really hot and bothered or crazy about supplements and nutrition timing and things like that. However, both of them work just fine. My personal recommendation is that if you want to take whey protein but let's say you have a mild allergy to something like. protein nut not protein but lactose products. So things like milk or cheeses things like that if any of those things make your tummy sick then the best option for you if you're wanting to do a whey based protein and animal protein is to take that whey protein and have an isolate version of that protein. So that is because it's lactose free or it's next to no lactose so it should not affect your stomach the same way that drinking a glass of milk would or drinking some ice cream or whatever it is that makes your stomach feel. So, you can still get the benefits of whey protein when you take that Whey Protein Isolate whey protein isolates typically cost a little bit more than whey protein concentrate which is exactly why I take away protein concentrate. But do we actually need protein in order to. grow and develop and build up our bodies. The answer is No. You can get protein and lots of other sources. Y The reason why you would want to take that protein shake is to simplify your life or to get that protein into your system quicker. A lot of times when you work out the moment that you're done you're not really hungry and you don't really feel like eating. So a good thing to do is to just throw down a protein shake because it's easily digestible. It doesn't fill up your stomach the same way that like a plate of chicken breast and broccoli and all these things would make your stomach feel directly after a workout.Anyways, just watch the video where I take a deeper dive with this topic. --- Support this podcast:
